The Lloyds from London was a wooden 3 mast barque built at Deptford, Kent in 1830 by T. Ward & J.B. Stone, 402/403/406 tons, length - 110' 7" beam - 28' 5" no depth of hold recorded. She left Gravesend on 1 August 1838 under Captain Garrett (or Gunett or K B Stone) and arrived Port Adelaide on 1 December 1838 carrying 181 passengers.


If you have information on passengers or need help locating them on the tree, start a discussion here..

Some of the passengers:


  • September 22nd, 1838: a Scottish lass (aged 17) fell overboard whilst drawing water, and drowned. That same night the Ship Doctor's brother died on the voyage, of a brain fever (possibly Daniel Wilkie).
  • October 27th, 1838: a Mrs Thomson had an infant daughter, and Mrs Alderman had a son (which died)
